"180 degree rotation about the origin" is the stuff about rotating a figure 180 degrees either in the clockwise or counter-clockwise direction.

When we rotate a figure of 180 degrees about the origin either in the clockwise or counterclockwise direction, each point of the given figure has to be changed from (x,y) to (-x,-y) and graph the rotated figure.

To have better understanding on "180 degree rotation about the origin", let us look at some practice problems.

**Problem 1 : **

Let P (-2, -2), Q (1, -2) R (2, -4) and S (-3, -4) be the vertices of a four sided closed figure. If this figure is rotated 180° about the origin, find the vertices of the rotated figure and graph.

**Solution : **

**Step 1 :**

Here the given is rotated 180° about the origin. So the rule that we have to apply here is (x , y) -------> (-x , -y)

**Step 2 :**

Based on the rule given in step 1, we have to find the vertices of the rotated figure

**Step 3 :**

**(x , y) ----------> (-x , -y)**

P ( -2 , -2 ) ------------ P' ( 2 , 2 )

Q ( 1 , -2 ) ------------ Q' ( -1 , 2 )

R ( 2, -4 ) ------------ R' ( -2, 4 )

S ( -3 , -4 ) ------------ S' ( 3 , 4 )

**Step 4 :**

Vertices of the rotated figure are

** P' (2, 2) , Q' (-1, 2), R' (-2, 4) and S' (3, 4) **
